Your sentence is missing an object and a demonstrative adjective. Who is the target of the holier-than-thou attitude? Which/how much attitude are you referring to?
You would need to add a couple of words such as:
Don't give me that holier than thou attitude.
Don't give your friend so much holier than thou attitude.
